Abolitionist Kinaesthetics: Movement Works in End Times
Wed, June 9, 2021 | 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM | Online
A performance lecture, a guided meditation, a listening party, a dreaming session—this virtual gathering invites participants to consider the relations between the social movements to abolish carceral institutions and the embodied movements to improvise freedom through dance. How can collective movement practices help us imagine and conjure a world after the end of racialised punishment, criminalisation and incarceration, a world without prisons and detention centres? 3 movement workers—June Yuen Ting, Jeremy Guyton and Shao Shin Frieda Luk—came together in a collaborative movement research project to pose the abolitionist question of movement practice. The creative process of the research will be shared with participants through texts, images and videos.
